Doniphan Man Wins New Car in Missouri Lottery Promotion

DONIPHAN, MO (KAIT) - Daniel Sanders of Doniphan recently became the second Missouri Lottery player to win a 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe, plus $500 in the "Muscle Up" promotion.  Sanders' entry was selected to win the grand prize in a drawing held on May 22.

The 21-year-old Sanders said a friend of his father called the morning after the drawing to say that he was listed as the grand-prize winner on Molottery.com.  Sanders' father verified that he was the winner, and woke his son to tell him the good news.

"I'm still in shock," Sanders said when he claimed his prize yesterday.

The southeast Missouri farmer ended up taking the cash option of the prize, which is $90,845 tax paid.  He said he plans to invest the prize money, but is also considering purchasing a restored 70s era Ford Ranchero, and taking a trip to the Crater of Diamonds state park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas.
